Blindly climbed the second pitch of Route 1 - you would have thought the black streak would have highlighted the way!
gforce - AltLd rpt - 29/Mar/14 with Tim W

danimal88 - Lead O/S - 29/Mar/14 with Toby Burrell

Led p1, small wires rather useful. Second pitch is excellent and forced even me to do two hand jams and two foot jams

Uisdean hawthorn - AltLd O/S - 12/Oct/13 with Callum_Johnson

Excellent first pitch!

Led pitch 2. This is just like the granite slabs of Ailefroide, but without the bolts. Perfect rock, perfect friction.

Captain Solo - Lead - 20/May/12 with Brian

Led p2. Excellent. Silly slip seconding p1, not even on the hard bit!
Dizz - AltLd - 16/May/12 with Andy N

Nearly 15 years since last climbed so almost O/S! Total classic route with great moves all the way on perfect rock, nice variation is to do the 5c start of Northumberland Wall leading direct to the crack on pitch 2 (left of tree) , this gives you two E1 5c pitches instead of one....
Chad123 - Lead rpt - 28/Apr/12 with Sophie B, Emily

Amazing rock! Awesome position. Delicate 5c move in first pitch but fairly steady thereafter. This was my first ever climb with a heavily pregnant woman, who cruised it! Tip top route in the sunshine :)
